Dear Family of Mary!

"Dear children...Pray for your shepherds and long to come to know the love of your Heavenly Father, in union with them. Thank you." (December 2, 2013)

Our Lady shows us in these words how she loves. She loves by drawing others into her own heart and longing for them the very graces and blessings that she longs for herself. She prays for others as if she is praying for herself, asking for the blessings and graces that she needs, but asking for those she prays for in the same breath! We can imitate her way of praying, by drawing others into our hearts and asking God to give them the graces we long for! Beautiful!

And we can especially do this for our priests, who need our prayers so badly. I have assembled Our Lady's requests for prayer for priests over the past year, because these requests reveal so much about her love for priests, and how we can love them. Today, as we fast, let's pray for priests with all our hearts!

January 02, 2013 "Dear children...My children, pray for the shepherds. May your lips be shut to every judgment, because do not forget that my Son has chosen them and only He has the right to judge. Thank you."

February 02, 2013 "Dear children ...Pray for your shepherds so that through your fasting and prayer they can lead you in love. Thank you."

March 02, 2013 "Dear children! ...I am especially praying and watching over those whom my Son called to be light-bearers and carriers of hope for you - for your shepherds. Thank you."

April 02, 2013 "Dear children, ...Again I am warning you, pray for those whom my Son called, whose hands He blessed and whom He gave as a gift to you. Pray, pray, pray for your shepherds. Thank you."

May 02, 2013 "Dear children.... My children, my Son gave you a gift of the shepherds. Take good care of them. Pray for them. Thank you."

June 02, 2013 "Dear children, ...Love your shepherds as my Son loved them when He called them to serve you. Thank you."*Our Lady said this resolutely and with emphasis.

July 02, 2013 "Dear children, ...Dear children, extend the joy of love and support to your shepherds, just as my Son has asked them to extend it to you. Thank you."

August 02, 2013 "Dear children, ...Again I am calling you to love your shepherds and to pray that, at this difficult time, the name of my Son may be glorified under their guidance. Thank you."

September 02, 2013 "Dear children,..I am imploring Him that, through Him, you may be God's children and my apostles. Then with great concern Our Lady said: "For the sake of Jesus, for the sake of my Son, love those whom He has called and long for the blessing only from the hands which He has consecrated. Do not permit evil to come to reign. Anew I repeat - only along side your shepherds will my heart triumph. Do not permit evil to separate you from your shepherds. Thank you."

October 02, 2013 "Dear children...Put your trust in your shepherds as my Son trusted when He chose them, and pray that they may have the strength and the love to lead you. Thank you."

November 02, 2013 "Dear children, ...Pray for your shepherds that they may always have love for you as my Son had, and showed by giving His life for your salvation. Thank you."

In Jesus, Mary and Joseph!
